Tenders now open for $15.1 million expansion of services at Sunshine Hospital

Monday, 07 October 2013
A major expansion of services at Sunshine Hospital has begun with tenders called as part of the $15.1 million project to deliver additional critical care services, five additional labour delivery rooms and future capacity for cardiology services, the Minister for Health David Davis announced today. 
 
Mr Davis said tenders were now open to build and fit out 13 new critical care beds and build capacity for two new cardiac catheter labs.
 
“The tender also calls for the construction of two new lift shafts to connect the critical care unit to the emergency department (ED) and radiological services.”
 
Mr Davis congratulated Western Health for their work in completing the dedicated pregnancy day stay unit, which is set to open soon.
 
“This new unit will have five examination beds, three observation chairs, and four consulting /procedure rooms. This will also be of great value to the many women in this area who are preparing to give birth at Sunshine Hospital,” Mr Davis said.
 
“A dedicated standalone ambulatory dialysis unit is also currently being built.
 
“This unit, with 15 dialysis bays and five single treatment rooms, will offer patients and carers the opportunity to bypass the rest of hospital and instead head straight into a dedicated building for personalised care.”
 
Work on the new dialysis unit is progressing and expected to be completed by the end of the year.
 
“Around 5,400 babies are expected to be born at Sunshine Hospital this year alone. These works are about meeting the needs of the community today while building capacity for the fast growing western suburbs into the future,” Mr Davis said.
 
“The Victorian Coalition Government knows how important it is to keep up with this growing community, and we are working to ensure Sunshine Hospital has the right facilities for that growth.”
 
Mr Davis said the 2013-14 State Budget included more than $629 million as part of a plan to update and rebuild ageing health infrastructure across Victoria.
 
“We are investing in capital works in hospitals across the state, because we want to ensure all Victorians have access to modern and efficient health services, no matter where they live,” Mr Davis said.
